What do you like best?
What I like about Zabbix that it is aimed at providing information infrastructure that monitors and services or processes, when you know that IT resources have and the information from these, you have time where they can best develop strategies and the objectives of the company in its computer park. In addition, Zabbix helps you in planning and organization, acquisition and implementation, because you know what services are available and you should give support, Zabbix monitors the status and performance of your devices or IT equipment through its client using various especially the SNMP protocols, with this you can take comfort in knowing that you have control of the information. Zabbi leads the company to take full advantage of their equipment and dispositovos monitored, thus achieving maximizing benefits, capitalizing on opportunities and gaining competitive advantage. One of the underrated options Zabbix is ​​that it is your ideal for your projects Internet of things companion. Forget Nagios, Cacti and similar software.
What do you dislike?
You want to start Zabbix in your company? You know how to use Linux? You have some notion of ITIL?
If you do not have expertise in IT infrastructure, IT Governance, ITIL or Linux will be a real headache.
Despite that unlike Nagios, Zabbix works via web, you need to know Linux, SNMP, OIDs know and understand and read system events.
Some things will have to perform on command console or at the time such applications rely Webmin to complete some tasks or make troubleshooting.
Zabbix does not work alone. You need a partner to handle the management of events, information or reporting problems Zabbix. In my opinion one of the best companions of Zabbix are "pfsense", "Splunk" and "GLPI".
Splunk will serve you for insights when you have too many devices to monitor and report many similar problems or require taking based on analysis of logs decisions.
GLPI in turn can be integrated with Zabbix where Zabbix can send status information via API equipment, devices, resources or services offline, problems or blocked and generate a ticket to be served.
With pfsense you can interconnect different network segments and monitor them with Zabbix or even monitor multiple remote sites even if they are using VPN.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
- Monitor all devices on my network
- Know your status
- Knowing what services are running or which are failing
- Segmenting the types of equipment and perform tasks by type and category
- Know the status of my network
- Making decisions on time
- Automate certain processes
- Have information Just in Time
- Being able to know that this could fail or failing on my network or infrastructure and take preventive action contrary to be taking corrective action.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
You must have trained technical staff in Linux
You must have technical staff who understands the different protocols, ports and types of service
You must have people with ability to analyze events, records and logs
You must have a good system of UTM to interconnect your network and monitor both your local network and your external networks.
You must have a good knowledge in troubleshooting network or linux.
You must have a good hardware if you are monitoring many devices Zabbix makes heavy use of the system especially database and hard disk.
Do not expect results from one day to another Zabbix implementation takes time and must have a project or list of things to know that you're going setting, adapting and inventory and then monitor it.

Zabbix review

What do you like best?
1) Discovery of network, disc, filesystems, memory, perfomance metrics
(in the fact you install their zabbix client on the computer and it auto fills it on the control panel)
System Logs collection (which I was looking for in the change the last couple weeks).
Define your screens of what you want to view, then it has a slide show portion that you can make several screens and it will rotate through on a web page.
What do you dislike?
it won't automagically figure out what to monitor, when to alert you and etc - you will have to think about what metrics you are interested in and configure them upfront;

debugging leaves something to be desired. although with such a small environment help options like forum, irc channel etc should suffice easily.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I am monitoring inhouse servers, from server resources to JMX applications.

zabbix can monitor using methods like snmp, simple network checks (is a port open ?), and it also has native agent for many platforms. as the agent is written in c, it has extremely small footprint (as opposed to bunch of interpreted scripts...). you can easily combine different checks on a single monitored host. note that you are not limited to monitoring servers, you can also add network devices and other things.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Zabbix has a web configuration, while Nagios uses text files. While web configuration seems nice, it is a pain to automate like using Chef or Puppet.
Zabbix has graphs and stats collection via SNMP or custom agent. Nagios don't. Even so, you must think if you are really looking for graphing support or just a robust monitoring system to tell you if something goes down.
Zabbix is resource hungry. It uses a DB to store all the stats and configuration and this can grow exponentially depending on the number of hosts you are monitoring. Nagios works very fast and normally will not require the ammount of resources that Zabbix does. You can tune zabbix, of course, but it's more work to do.

Its a great tool to use for server monitoring
